HPC Youth Happenings:10/21/14

Dear Parents, Students and Volunteers,

Thank you to everyone who came and participated in Underground Outdoors this past Sunday! God gave us beautiful weather and a picturesque sunset. Josh Huff led us in worship around the fire. Scott Bennett shared the good news of the Gospel with us from Acts 16. And many other adults and students helped make it a fantastic event.

Here is some important info about upcoming retreats and trips:

It's not too early to think about other 2015 events...

- Our annual Super Bowl Party will be Sunday, February 1st. Is anyone interested in hosting at their home?

I'm still looking for 1 person to fill 1 volunteer need: Middle School Sunday School Assistant
- This is a low prep job, that will require teaching a few times
- This is a great way to get to know some great kids!

New Medical Release Forms are due! Here are a few things to know about them:
- Each student must turn in a 2014-15 MRF in order to attend any special event with HPC
- The form must be signed by parents AND notarized.
- If you don't know a notary, most banks will notarize things if you're a member, or you can try a UPS Store
- The form is good for 1 year...until September 1st, 2015 in this case
- Starting next year, we will begin this process earlier (April/May) in order to accommodate rising 6th graders.
- You can download the form here
- I have 27 out of 47 forms so far...

This Week:

D-Groups for Middle and High School Students are Tomorrow (Wednesday), October 22nd, 6:00-7:30 PM

- Parents' Night Out: November 21st

That is all.

In Christ,
